Favourites

 
I love scented Geraniums.
 
This is my absolute favourite, "Pelargonium Fragrans" (also known as nutmeg geranium).
The leaves and flowers are edible and has a very special but fantastic smell. It is hard to put my finger on it, a note of wood, nutmeg, a hint of mint and spice...I find it highly addictive, I can`t stop rubbing those leaves ! Many cooks love using the plant in cool drinks, desserts, and for adding flavours to jellies, vinegars and different fruit dishes.
 
 
 I have always liked Daisies ( Nellis perenniss), they are simple but still they make our garden look so beautiful. And look, Julie loves them too !

Hallå där bland alla vackra sommarbilder, de är poetiska som vanligt och just den pelargonen älskar jag också, det hade nästan kunnat vara hemma hos mej med den träskivan under;) Och vilken fin GRÖN virkad hängmatta, ursnygg!!!

Hopas du får en toppensommar Aina!!! Med den svarta lilla godingen!

Soliga hälsningar från Nordingården & Mari.

Dear Aina,
I LOVE that Pelargonium and will look out for it at our nurseries.
Hope you are well and enjoying the Summer. The weather has been awful here in the UK ..... we are off to Croatia so I am looking forward to some warmer weather !!

Dit is inderdaad een hele mooie bloem, Aina.

Vanmiddag zat ik een oude Ariadne te lezen, waar een reportage over jou was opgenomen. Dus het is vandaag dubbel op, in het woonblad en hier op je blog ;-)!

Fijn weekend! Lieve groet, Ingrid

I also love the lovely simplicity of daisies. And your precious black kitty is the perfect contrast!

Den pelargonen väcker min nyfikenhet, jag skulle vilja känna den blandningen av dofter och vacker är den också i sin enkelhet.
Och där är den fina katten Julius! Jag har själv haft en svart katt Lakrits som jag än idag kan sakna, han var så självklar i mitt liv.
Nu har jag en oriental/bengal som skulle vara här en kort tid för senare omplacering. Hon är fortfarande kvar efter mer än 10 år. En väldigt aktiv katt som hittar på tokigheter och kan reta både hunden och mig. Men hon är älskad trots sina olater.
Tack Aina för din kommentar, jag blev så glad över dina ord om min blogg! Gamla lerfat och gammalt linne tillhör också mina favoriter.
Jag fick en resväska fylld med handspunnet lin av en gubbe som vet att jag ibland väver. Men tiden har ännu inte funnits för det. Men när hösten kommer ska jag försöka ta mig till det.

Önskar dig och Julius många fina sommardagar!

Kramar
Cia
